A PEACEFUL and INVITING
QUAKER NECK WATERFRONT FARM
(Slide show below.)
This rare, gently rolling 30-acre "Gentleman's Farm" boasts the peace and tranquility of Quaker Neck in the County of Kent. It is located a short distance from Chestertown on Maryland upper Eastern Shore. Kent County is known for its pastoral conserved land, its renown hunting and fishing, agriculture and water sports.
Chestertown is home to Washington College and is one of only three Maryland towns on the National Register. Steeped in 18th and 19th century history and architecture Chestertown prides itself as a "preserved" town of three-hundred years. Kent County has been preserved to the delight of residents and visitors, alike.
However, Chestertown is not "sleepy" for it offers an Arts & Entertainment District with RiverArts (a thriving center of the arts,) live theatre, specialty shops and innumerable year-round cultural events.
Added to the tranquility is a 2011 100' dock on Philips Creek off Lankford Creek of the Chester River. Because this property is 30-acres and is actively farmed, the owners enjoy both Agricultural Tax Credits and CRP income.
This is a perfect size property for a "small" farm of organic specialty crops or horses and other farm or pleasure animals. It is a quite suitable, as well, for farm-to-table crops desired by County residents and visitors or local restaurants. In addition, several farms in the County are weekend havens for those living in New York, Philadelphia and Washington. Local farmers have the benefit of the leased farm fields and hunting rights.
The main house is serene. It is of a simple homestead design with three bedrooms, living room with fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen and comfortable screened porch. The fireplace chimney and hearth have been recently improved. Extensive interior re-wiring was completed in 2011 and, most importantly, a new septic system installed that same year.
This is a property that really needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
